Yes, it’s true. Kenny McCune and David Newton created Megaphone Designs (www.megaphonedesigns.com), making quality internet websites available for even small churches and ministries.
(I nearly titled this commentary: “99 reasons a small church cannot have a website! Solution? Pay the $99 and make it happen!”) A simple website can be developed for that little amount of money!
Kenny and David were buddies while attending their Christian University, Southwest Baptist, in Bolivar, Mo, just north of Springfield. While students they helped plant a church, built relationships, and were delighted as they discovered they could use their high tech interests and skills … and serve God … at the same time.
Thus, simply stated, “Megaphone Designs” was born, helping churches and ministries of any size to have a presence, a “witness” on the “World Wide Web,” the Internet.
And they can do so … for $99! There are reasonable maintenance fees, but … think of it … your ministry and it message can be “up there,” available for all to see … for $99.
Some laypeople in churches perhaps struggling financially could provide the $99 to thus increase the ministry impact of your church.
Want to see the work of Megaphone Designs? Visit www.haroldhendrick.com. Our website is a result of their skills and commitments. They have assigned to us one of their terrific staff resources … Content Coordinator Beka Todd … to assure that things are done in good quality!
I have the joy of hosting radio … part time for 30 years … on Bott Radio (AM 1320) in St. Louis (www.bottradionetwork.com). BRN has more than 100 stations and broadcast outlets.
(In one year in the past, Bott Radio Network founder Dick Bott was one of two recipients of a Lifetime Achievement Award by the National Religious Broadcasters (www.nrb.org). The other recipient? Evangelist Billy Graham! In a recent three year period, BRN President Rich Bott served as Chairman of the board of Directors of National Religious Broadcasters.)
The majority of radio recording that I host … 10-12 minutes each … can be accessed at our website from anywhere in the world. Once a radio conversation is broadcast on Bott Radio in St. Louis, my wife Joan Hendrick (raised on a western Oklahoma farm) has posted hundreds of them. They are there now, I hope until Jesus returns!. Once we connected with Megaphone Designs, Joan sends them the copy, and they are pretty well there to stay.
Jesus commanded us to be His witnesses (Acts 1:8). Realizing that we have such a limited time on this earth, we welcomed our witness being enlarged … and having it penetrate deeper. Having our website advances that vision.
Contact Megaphone Designs (www.megaphonedesigns.com) … and increase your witness presence by making your simple website happen … for only $99.
